WOLKSWAGEN'S HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT
It is an automobile company founded in 1937 by the German Automotive Association in Germany. The name of the company means the car of the people in German. In 1940, Volkswagen put the industrial power under the command of the army to increase the German combat power. After World War II, a board of 15 people consisting of the Ministry of National Economy, the Ministry of Finance, Federel, the Republic of Germany, the Republic of Lower Saxony, factory managers and factory personnel was passed to the supervisory board of Volkswagen. Wolkswagen produced the world's first air cooled engine. The reason for this is that the engines with water cooling were damaged during the World War II by not being able to withstand the cold weather conditions in Russia. In 1948, Heinz NORDHOFF was reorganized and returned to the original production opportunity in 1950. In 1953, it became the most automobile producing company of West Germany. In 1980, it accelerated its efforts to provide services to the whole world. In 1985, a new 16-valve engine was added to the "GTI" engine. The success of this new engine in the international automobile sports started to come to the fore in a short time and in 1986, Group A World Champion Golf GTI became 16 V. As the production and development of Wolkswagen progressed, on March 23, 1987, a white Golf GL type was a special production. This production became Wolkswagen's 50 millionth car. Now the Golf model has become the most sold car in Europe, not only in Germany. (Müslüm Evci - the Anadoludabug)
